Located only a few minutes away from the University and on several bus routes, this was a great place to stay for a week or two whilst working. The rooms had everything I needed and were VERY clean. The service was good and everyone very helpful.

We needed an affordable hotel for the Ithaca area ($90 or so). Thanks to the previous Trip Advisor comments, I booked this motel for two nights. It was fine from the standpoint that it is a comfortable place to sleep. Absolutely no frills. Best part is how clean the room and especially the bathroom was. And I felt safe at the hotel. Thanks to the candid reviews.

I needed just one night, so I stayed here based on reviews on this site. I was not disappointed. Yes the room was small and not fancy - but everything was clean. My bed was comfortable enough and was not an issue. I stayed on the ground floor direclty across from the office building. Maybe not all of the rooms are the same, based on some of the reviews on this site.

Compared to the going rate at other places I stayed during the "off" season, this place was not priced too high.

Located outside of Ithaca, it is a reasonably well maintained older building. Rooms were small and simple (spartan ?), but very clean. Price I paid ($100/night) was much lower than the chain hotels in town ($130 - $ 190 quoted).
I only needed a clean / quiet / comfortable place to sleep, so it fit my needs well.

My wife and I stayed here with our 5 month old son when visiting her cousin at Cornell. We only stayed a night but would have changed to a new hotel had we needed to stay another. The price was way too high for rather substandard accomadations. The bed was uncomfortable and the place did not feel clean. The wall were paper thin and we were woken up in the middle of the night by some noisy drunk kids returning to their room next to ours and blasting the TV with the volume all the way up. Woke up with a sore neck and back and couldnt get out of there fast enough.

Room Tip: Stay somehwere else to find a good room

It can be a challenge to find a reasonable motel in Ithaca on certain weekends, so we were glad to find this place. We paid $115, which by Ithaca standards, is reasonable. This is definitely not a chain. Definitely family run. Room was small, dated and worn, but clean. Continental breakfast was bare bones - cold cereal (in individual packages), milk, orange juice coffee, packaged baked goods, and some apples and bananas. No tables - you had to take it back to your room. In the mroning, I went to the office to request extra towels, and within less than 10 minutes, a full double set was delivered. Can't really complain, but don't expect amenities.

Room Tip: All rooms require a walk across the parking lot to get to the office. This could be a real drawback...

Rooms were scarce in Ithaca this weekend so we chose this motel based on Tripadvisor reviews. This is not a hotel, all the rooms open to the outside. Place was just as reviewed here...zero frills but clean. Close to Cornell campus, about a 6 minute ride to the football stadium. If you want to save a few bucks, this is a good choice. Two night stay cost me about $240 with tax.
